Home life is at the heart of a L’Arche Community. The different members of a community are called to be one body.

Each community is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and is governed by its own board of directors and managed by caring and professional staff. L’Arche communities are united through their membership in L’Arche USA and in the International Federation of L’Arche.

L’Arche Long Island relies on the generosity of people like you to cover the costs of many day-to-day necessities like housing, food, and transportation for our Core Members.

A gift from our wish list sends the message that you care about the unique needs of each person in L’Arche. We strive to provide each home with the necessary tools to develop a healthy home life through nutritious meals, clean and comfortable rooms, and social activities that strengthen ties in the community.

As a part of our fundraising efforts, we have started a registry for housewarming gifts to help us with items for our new home.  The registries can be accessed via the links below:
